Espinosa, Juan C
The purpose of this study is to verify whether or not there is a characteristic pattern of leadership in a specific regional culture and also whether there are any significant differences according to the economic sector to which the organization belongs (industry and services). A sample of 449 employees of eight companies that operate in the city of Bucaramanga was used. The Pitcher Adjectives Test (PAT) was applied. According to the results, a leadership pattern characterized by the following adjectives: responsible, human, hardworking, collaborative, honest and pleasant, does exist. In general, the characteristics of leadership in the two sectors studied were very similar, although certain differences were noted. In this text the findings are discussed.
